Under Hypnosis, you are in a deep state of relaxation which allows you to pause the conscious process in order to access your subconscious. By putting your logical and Cartesian consciousness aside, you are able to retrieve lost memories in order to trace them back and understand their reasons and origins and then to remove the impact they have on your present life.
You will remain aware of your actions and words.
